This is the kind of book I feel like I should have read, and I honestly don't know why I haven't. It's one of the early YA books, and as a YA-lover, I think it's something you need to have read. I just haven't gotten to it.
This one only sort of counts, since I started it but didn't finish. Everyone else loved it, but I just couldn't get into it. I really don't know what's wrong with me, since this is the kind of book where you just have to say the name in order for every YA-lover to start fangirling. I might give Jellicoe Road another try some day, since people have said it gets better and starts making sense at the end.
7. Anything by Daivd Levithan
I've read some of his collaborations, but I've never read an only David Levithan book. Everyone seems to love him, so I really don't know why...
I generally stick to contemporary, so that's why I haven't read the Vampire Academy series, but I feel like I really should, since it's one of the most popular YA books out there.
9. Anything by Libba Bray
I love Libba Bray on Twitter, but I've never read any of her books. Must get around to reading one soon!
10. Anything by Maureen Johnson
Really, the same thing goes for Maureen Johnson. She is probably the funniest person on Twitter, so her books must be good too, right? I've read Let It Snow, which includes a short story of hers, but I haven't read any of her novels.
So these are some of the books I feel everyone has read but me. What books have you not read that everyone else has?
Hi! I'm a 20-year-old college student originally from Germany going to school in the US, studying English Literature, Spanish, and Queer Studies. When I'm not reading for school, I mainly read Young Adult books, especially contemporary, which is mostly what I review here. I also contribute to Feminists Talk Books (http://www.paperbacktreasures.blogspot.com).
